- (Source: AP)Former South Africa cricketer Jonty Rhodes said Sachin Tendulkar and current India captain Virat Kohli were both great in their own way and it was wrong to compare the duo.
- Tendulkar is Tendulkar and Virat (Kohli) is Virat,” he said at a function organised by Velammal Vidyalaya here to felicitate the school’s achievers in the field of sports.
- Asked if Kohli could break Tendulkar’s records, he said, “Tendulkar started at the age of 16 and played until the age of nearly 40, for almost 24 years and set several benchmarks.
- I don’t know if Kohli can play for such a long time, given the demands of a modern-day cricketer.”
